According to this research, fat protein complexes and their abundance can be the reason for this neurodegenerative disease.
According to the data provided by the CDC, Alzheimer’s disease affects million of people on an annual basis. Alzheimer’s is one of the most known face of dementia. In this disease, the brain is damaged to the extent that some of the most primitive and basic information is lost. The persons that are affected by Alzheimer’s suffer from cognitive memory loss, delayed thought processes, and basic learning procedures.
Scientists have been working for quite some time on the disease-causing factors for Alzheimer’s. Some of the suggestive factors which are the result of the previous researches are age, family history, dietary choices, and certain environmental factors. These are some of the causing agents that work in collaboration and thus leads to the onset of this degenerative disease.
Groundbreaking new #CurtinUniversity-led research has discovered a likely cause of Alzheimer’s disease, in a significant finding that offers potential new prevention & treatment opportunities for Australia’s second-leading cause of death 👉 https://t.co/liLyyHXKo4 #CurtinResearch— Curtin University (@CurtinUni) September 15, 2021
The lead author of the paper, Dr. John Mamo, who is a distinguished professor and director of the Curtin Health Innovation Research Institute at Curtin University in Perth, Australia said that
“To find new opportunities to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s, we need to understand what actually causes the disease, and presently that is not established”.
He further explained that with the right diet plan and medications the concentration of these fatty particles can be reduced. This will eventually help to slow down the rate of progression of this disease.
But with the help of this study, we are one step closer to find the leading cause which will help us greatly to plan the exact cure and devise the right preventive strategies.
With the help of this new discovery, scientists are hopeful that Alzheimer’s cure may no longer be a dream.
